You will then be provided with a login so that you can complete USRowing's liability waiver - which is separate from the NVRC waiver.
Both waivers are required for you to row.

Full 2023 Membership and Season Fees are refundable up to June 1, less an administrative fee of 5%.
If a rower withdraws on or after June 1 but before June 15, Full Membership and Season Fees are refundable less 10%.
After June 15th, the Season Fee is no longer refundable; however, members may request a partial refund if circumstances end their season for one of the following reasons:
-Member sustains a season ending injury
-Member moves from their current address to an address an 50 miles from Sandy Run Regional Park
The Board of Directors will consider the request and, if approve, provide a refund for the partial program fee equal to the proportion of the season the member will miss and less a 5% administrative fee.
